[size=10pt][size=10pt]Intro :: What is Pokereum[/size][/size]
Pokereum is an experimental contemporary community driven idea of using flat virtual decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO) to manage and develop a decentralized application (DAPP) that solves the mental poker problem using Ethereum smart contracts, Telehash mesh networking and a consensus network. The Poker app or DAPP basically lets you play a game of poker while ensuring random number generation and card shuffling are fair and transparent while reducing cost for poker players, reducing the possibilities of collusion and enabling cheap boundless payments and withdrawals using cryptocurrencies and smart contracts. Mechanisms to enable easy on-boarding of non crypto-currency users and stable value crypto currencies are detailed in the white paper.

Pokereum, the Ethereum - Telehash based provably fair decentralized poker DAO & DAPP project is intended to unite all coin communities and spur mass adoption of crypto currencies. The Dapp aspect is made possible through the use of smart contracts, a unique proof of stake/participation based jury consensus system and a mini blockchain weakly subjected to the Ethereum chain.

The Pokereum poker app is a DAPP(decentralized app) managed by the evolving Pokereum DAO (decentralized autonomous organization): a collective community people from all coin communities working together to achieve a common goal, voting on key issues and direction and development of the Pokereum DAPP, assisted by DAO delegates and autonomous agents.

Every decision is controlled by the community as a whole using tokens associated with the Pokereum DAO. Governance and other organizational activities will start out on the Nxt Voting enabled platform and gradually move to the Ethereum platform; a more robust system for automated enforceable decisions and distributed trust / security. All Pokereum DAPP smart contracts will be built on the Ethereum platform. For more information on how DAO’S might work see this recent article detailing a overall sample framework :: http://www.coindesk.com/succeed-as-decentralized-autonomous-organization/

[size=10pt][size=10pt]White Paper tl;dr Important Tidbits[/size][/size]

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Parent chain and Security [/size][/size]

Parent chain is the ethereum chain on which the Pokereum “Ringed chain” relies. Information block information is stored and retrieved from the ethereum blockchain by new nodes joining the network


Multi-strategy anti-collusion mechanisms using:
-Table stake group access randomization and challenge response jury pool authentication
-deployment of low EV dispersible bots at low capacity

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Trustworthiness and Sybil Resilience[/size][/size]

Foundation for anti-collusion and a basis for the security of the jury pool consensus system. Using an account effective stake, account velocity and participation as a unit for determining eligibility to the jury consensus pools

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Provably fair random number and shuffling[/size][/size]
Multiple random inputs from jury pool nodes are sent to contracts and combined for an increased entropic seed to random number generation, generating multiple encrypted decks by adding and increasing nonces. Multitude of encrypted cards and keys can be generated and stored in decentralized storage until ready for use by the network.

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Multi-Networks Player Nodes:[/size][/size]
A pokereum node consist of an ethereum connected light client , ability to use the whisper protocol alongside decentralized storage and telehash enabled mesh RTC

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Jury Pools[/size][/size]
These are subsets of the network nodes selected to pools using random information passed to the Pokereum network by the system of ethereum contract in addition to their effective stake, account velocity/participation to perform important task on behalf of the Pokereum network as a whole

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Check Points[/size][/size]
Specific points in the Ethereum blockchain where new nodes can download old information to be sure they have the correct state of the network

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Epochs Ringed blockchain [/size][/size]
24 hour, 1 hour intervals. 1 hour is an epoch. Every 25th hour epoch is overwritten by a new 1st hour epoch. each current hour represents the current state of the network

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Player gamification point system[/size][/size]
Ten ranks represented by 10 badges. Each rank constitutes a certain number of points. Top ranking nodes are rewarded with rake backs, free private tables, free tournament entries and more as the network matures

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Pokereum DAO[/size][/size]
The Pokereum DAO is in charge of the management of the Pokereum DAPP.
Members consists of individuals, establishments or autonomous agents. Every
member of the DAO is incentivized to contribute to the long term success of the DAPP

[size=10pt][size=10pt]Crowdfunding date:[/size][/size] TBD by DAO (DAO delegates needed)

Most of all, no promises made, no outcome is certain. This is an experiment and you are welcome to be part of it, to help dictate its future. Thank you.


Hi everyone. I’m a part of the core dev team (momentum) and I’d be happy to answer any questions people have about our project. :slight_smile:

Does open source? :slight_smile:

We plan on open-sourcing it when we wrap up our closed beta phase. Exact scheduling and dates aren’t available just yet.
